I suggest finding a manual steering setup and swap the steering box and the tie links (tie links are different length). Parallel parking can be tight but it will steer straight regardless and never ever ever EVER leak.

Ford power assist leaked from the factory.

Or he could go with the conversion kit from CJ Pony Parts. Not exactly cheap, but reliable.

I was thinking of that steering box, but its still too early to be buying parts



i started to hook up the pump to steering valve last night
thats the last thing to hook up before i can fire the engine

off course i got wrong hoses and pump missing fitting

hose i got is for 68 mustang it has 5/16 fitting, 67 head 1/4"fittings
i got some ghetto fitting put together to convert to 1/4" but ill get new correct hose.

















in my parts bin i found water cooled fuel pump setup from my boat
and it had fitting i needed.
fitting at pump is M-16 o ring to 45 flare i believe.

















wasted bunch of time to come up with way to run the engine with P/Spump hooked up and run out of time to fire the engine.
the engine crank over with starter so thats good.
and when i primed oil pump ,oil came right up trough the push rods.



i did took off the valve covers and made priming tool out of old distributor that was in the trunk with oil pump driveshaft.







the oil pump shaft supposed to be installed in the engine from bottom.
with star washer, so it doesnt come out with distributor or fall into pan.






will have to go trough the valve train and check the preload bc. i dont trust that mouthbreather, who put it together


and have to redo tranny cooler mounting

I restored a 67 while in college. It was a learning experience I would not like to repeat. FoMoCo reamed my wallet until it was red and sore.

got the engine fired up Sunday and broke the cam in
car sounds pretty good and engine is healthy
have header leak on pass side and need to weld the exhaust where it joins at headers




60# of oil pressure




first time around the valves were really tight and had to re-adjust them couple of time.
i think its because the lifters pumped up with oil and threw the settings off,
they were too tight that couple cylinders didn't even make combustion

also when i did adjustment i follower direction that came with lifters
took up the slack until you cant turn the pushrod with your fingers and tighten the rocker another 1/2 turn
this also made the preload too tight.


what worked in the end i loosened up the rockers and snug them down at 0 preload and left them



timing was also fun,( I've never mess with this stuff before)
when i read...point the distributor rotor to # 1 cylinder
it mean #1 on distributor cap
not actually point to #1 cylinder lol

it makes sense now idk what i was thinking

been chipping away on the car little bit .

wheel offset been fixed by 1/4" spacers that were on sale for 7$
didn't noticed they were 4 lug 4.5" lol
used jeep wheel spacer as template and re-drilled the holes







got all power steering hoses changed and hooked up.

installed new boot on the assist cylinder.
in spare part box i had new mounting hardware

new CCW fan showed up and got mounted




and have brake booster sorted out
had to enlarge firewall hole for booster to fit trough





and once that was done i had to lengthen the push rod and might as well make it adjustable

took 2$ threaded coupler and 3/8" SS bolt and had the adapter made on the lunch brake,
the coupler got plug welded to the push rod and bolt slotted and eyelet tig welded together















onto the brake lines next, and tidy up the wiring

I hate a motherfucker that can't write a sentence on directions. I've spent days re-doing procedures that were only wrong by a word missing or added.

Point at #1 cylinder. Point at #1 spark position. Makes you want to beat them until they can admit there is a difference. In your case, I can forgive them because well context. Directions are supposed to be written so anyone can understand what to do even if they don't know why they are doing it.

I learned this one the hard way myself. The point where you can't easily rotate the pushrod is when the valve starts to open. Just take out any wiggle room (zero preload), then another 1/2 turn.

it made pretty good bang at 10PM like a gun went off
i went back and forth so many times checking timing, TDC
took the valve covers off few times. it really took 3 nights getting it sorted out . almost pulled timing cover off
good times..

I've ran into this problem with higher lift cams also. I just got to the point where it gets 1/8th turn and then I go back in if there is any lifter tick and they get a little more until the tick goes away. Have had them where 1/4" turn was too much.
